## Back cover copy

Finally, the new edition corrects a number of deeply rooted misconceptions in the field of reliability and risk. For many decades, the Weibull distribution, for example, was considered to be the correct model for predicting the probability of failure of materials initiated by flaws. This book demonstrates that for this specific application, the Weibull distribution is a fundamentally flawed model.

Key features:

A unique set of 46 generic principles for reducing technical risk Monte Carlo simulation algorithms for improving reliability and reducing risk Methods for setting reliability requirements based on the cost of failure New reliability measures based on a minimal separation of random events on a time interval Overstress reliability integral for determining the time to failure caused by overstress failure modes A powerful equation for determining the probability of failure controlled by defects in loaded components with complex shape Comparative methods for improving reliability, which do not require reliability data Optimal allocation of limited resources to achieve a maximum risk reduction Improving system reliability based solely on a permutation of interchangeable components

Reliability and Risk Models: Setting Reliability Requirements, Second Edition, is a comprehensive reference for reliability engineers and risk and safety analysts, and is an excellent source of information for graduate students in reliability engineering, mathematics, and statistics.
